Hi Malcolm,

Thanks for using FixYa. Please make sure that the cooktop has a dedicated 15-amp line. The cook top needs 13 amps to operate and should be on a 15 amp dedicated circuit. If the circuit is not 15 amps or there are other electrical draws on the circuit, the unit is not getting enough power. The fuse may need to be changed. The fuse is a 250V ceramic, 20-amp fuse. It is always recommended to contact a qualified repair tech for changing the fuse as this will solve the problem and is much more economical than sending the cooktop in for diagnosis.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks Rylee

Had power go off now er flashing on all burners can not reset

It's possible that you had a surge when the power returned that scrambled the controller's brain. Try disconnecting power and reconnecting to restore normal operation. Disconnect power by unplugging the stove from the wall or switching off the breaker that controls it at your main circuit breaker box. Wait a minute or two, then plug the stove back in or turn the circuit breaker back on. If the stove does not work after this, you may need a new controller board.

Was using 4 burners and they all stopped working- electric burn smell in kitchen. External house breaker is not tripped

When you used all elements the power supply wire have been
gone to the maximum current absorbed so to the maximum heat. When the cook top
is new it can withstand this heat but due to long time used now you have burned
out wires and probably to junction point. So now the power supply wire is
burned and is open circuit thus not any power to the heater. The wires have
just open circuit and they don't touch each other or the metal body of the cook
top that is why you don't have the circuit breaker fuse to trip off. So now you
need to disassemble the cook top and you will very easily find the burn point
which should be melded and burned black and replace all parts that they have
been burned with new one.

Here is the link where you find the parts layout, the wiring
diagram and also order any parts you might need.

Also just for safety, avoid to use all four heater at the
same time in the future.

Stove is tripping circuit breaker Two burners stopped working properly (only get slightly warm). Switched the coils to the other side and the other side is still working. Looked underneath and saw that...

if it is an old stove i would say have it serviced/checked over. if it is a newer stove i am guessing the circuit breaker predates it and is rated for the old stove therefore you will need to have a larger circuit breaker installed (by a licenced electrician)

The cooktop does not come on

It sounds like the circuit breaker is kicked or the fuse is blown.

look in your electrical panel for the breaker and in the fuse box to see if the fuse is blown.

Can fuse be blown?

youl have to pukk out the unit and check the connection/installaiton. youll need to determine if you have proper voltage going to machine. ther if no fuse on the machine, more than like a power supply issue

Kelvinator stove

The stove has its own sepeate circuit breaker and power supply from the rest of the kitchen. Possible issues are a bad circuit breaker, power cord, outlet, or power connection at the range. Easiest checks to make first are visual burns at all these places.

Dacor SGM304... no ignition

There is no fuses, as long as you have a power supply into unit then the only item that can cause this fault is a faulty spark generator.the hob will need to be dismatled to repair, remove the knobs, remove the burners and then remove the obvious screws, top will lift off Regards Advisor
